Belize – Mayan ruins, picturesque beaches and jungle
Belize City is a historic city of the nation, which makes it an interesting place to spend a few days. But it is not at the top of the list of tourist destinations. Haulover Creek is a river that flows through the center of Belize City and thus divides it into two parts. On the one hand, there are nice colonial houses, seaside parks, bustling shopping areas and sailboats. On the other, smelly canals and eccentric slums. The town of Orange Walk will pleasantly tune you into what awaits you. From there, you can take boats to Lamanai, which will enchant you with the ruins of Mayan culture. You can go on a trip around the New River, where with a little luck you will also come across crocodiles. If you want to relax on the beach and swim in the sea, Placencia is perfect. It is also worth visiting the small fishing town of Punta Gorda. There are several hotels overlooking the ocean and the chocolate bar, which attract tourists. Punta Gorda is also the gateway to several jungle accommodations and visits to Mayan ruins. Many of them are not on the maps and you can only get there with the locals.
